This weekend our teams took to the pitches to once again support the Royal British Legion as over 500 players proudly wore a special Remembrance Day poppy on their shirt and observed a 1 minute’s silence before they kicked off with their matches. We’d like to thank our players, spectators, coaches and opposition for remembering this weekend with us.
With the colder weather now upon us, we have agreed to become Brand Ambassadors for Oglove! Following the question from our members about ‘which gloves would we recommend?’ and the feedback from some of our players and coaches; we thought we’d take this opportunity to work in partnership with Oglove to offer our members a 10% discounts on their order! As a Brand Ambassador, when you use our discount code to get 10% off your purchase, the club also benefits as we will earn £1 for every pair sold!
Ogloves are designed for players and spectators as they are waterproof thermal touchscreen gloves that come in both kids and adult sizes.
If you’d like to take advantage of the discount; go to www.oglove.co.uk, order the size you need (there is a sizing chart to help you) and enter the following discount code Woburnwavendon at the checkout under ‘coupon’.
Whilst we’re welcoming players to ‘fill a shirt’ with some of our teams, we’re also looking for volunteers to join our club as coaches and help with the successful running of training sessions and match days. We fully support all coaches on and off the pitch and have a breadth of knowledge amongst our club coaches and committee members to make your journey more enjoyable.
If you’d like to be part of an experienced team or enjoy the first footballing steps with our U6s, we’d like to hear from you!
We’d like to share the recognition we have received that outlines the standards of our grounds and maintenance that goes into them.
We are extremely proud of this as it’s a result of the investment and time of all those involved with the club put in, with a particular mention of Robert Hill (our Chairman!) who has taken ownership to deliver these high standards!
The New St Marys Primary school at Eagles Rest in Wavendon has two 5-a-side pitches and will be home to U7 Whirlwinds, U7 Hurricanes, U7 Cyclones and U8 Lionesses this season.
Big thank you to the school, Wavendon Parish Council and Milton Keynes Council for all their help and support in getting this up and running so quickly.
Not just important for WWFC as we look to meet demand for grass roots football, but also a huge part of community involvement and integration for the new and growing community.
Following 8 successful seasons with our current playing and training kit design; we’ve taken the opportunity to go back to the drawing board and redesign out kits with a fresh modern look! From the outset, we wanted to stay true to the club’s identify that has formed over a number of years by keeping our (recognisable) combination of colours (claret and sky blue) and pattern (stripes) as this has formed part of our heritage.
During the planning stage, we were offered kits that were readily available however we felt it was important to visually distinguish our club’s presence on the pitch by opting for a bespoke design specifically for our club. We also took the opportunity to utilise the sublimation printing process for our branding (club and sponsor), numbering and badges meaning the personalisation will be printed into the material as the kits are manufactured. Moving away from embroidery and heat transfer will help with washing the kits as well as preserving the longevity of them!.
We have instructed the help of Macca Sports to deliver our kits for the coming season (2019/20) and we look to phase the roll out over the next 2 season as we provide approximately 1,000 new kits to our players, which will see all 42 WWFC teams wearing our new design!
We’re extremely excited to receive our new kits and we wanted to share some renderings with our members in the meantime…
11 matches unbeaten and without conceding a single goal the Lionesses bravely fought their way to the final against the swift and skilful Kidlington Youth team. The final match eclipsed the day with an early goal from Kitty Martin and a screamer at the end from Ruby Hogan to give the girls a much deserved victory and earning each player a winners medal and the opportunity to savour the coveted tournament winners trophy. Last years shield winners to this years trophy winners – what a tremendous improvement from the girls!
The girls made it through to the final and narrowly lost out to a strong Stotfold side in this 9 aside tournament. Having come so close to a medal in the Flitwick tournament early in the month the girls had cause for celebration this time.A massive well done to the girls for finishing Runners Up.
We’d like to recognise two of our club coaches who have now completed their Level 3 (UEFA B) qualification in coaching football. Jeremy Hall (coaches our U15 Lionesses) and Martin White (coaches our U13 Tornadoes) have dedicated an amazing amount of hours (off and on the pitch) to achieve this and we’d like to congratulate them on their achievement!
